Alterations & Return Policy


Custom shirts and suits can be tricky, and getting everything perfect on your first try doesn’t always happen. Don’t worry though, we’re committed to doing what we can to help you get the perfect fit. If you don’t 100% love how your shirt or tailored clothing fits, we’re more than happy to provide a complimentary alteration or remake. We excel at making alterations and remakes quick and hassle-free.

Note: In addition to complimentary alterations, custom dress shirts and tailored clothing can also be returned for store credit, refunds or exchanges, subject to the Return & Exchange policy below.


  • Alteration and remake requests must be initiated within 90 days of when you receive your order.
  • After a remake or alteration request has been submitted please expect around two weeks for an updated shirt to be delivered, and 4-6 weeks for tailored clothing.
  • In order to request an alteration or remake, you must return your original garment to the Sewing Tailor showroom in Lucknow, India.
  • Each customer is entitled to up to two complimentary remakes for shirts and two complimentary remakes for tailored clothing. One is usually enough, but you get two. Just in case.
  • Customers outside of the US are responsible for return shipping costs.
  • Alterations and remakes are subject to fabric stock and availability. If a fabric is no longer in stock, an alternative of equal or lesser value may be selected.
  • If your body changes significantly after receiving your garment, we’re more than happy to help update your saved size. However, beyond your two complimentary remakes, Sewing Tailor is not responsible for remaking shirts and tailored clothing to fit your changing body size.
  • Receiving a complimentary remake on a shirt or piece of tailored clothing does not disqualify you from a full refund. You’ll just need to return both the original and the remade version of the garment to us to receive a refund.
  • For tailored clothing only, in order to request reimbursement for local tailoring expenses, a photo of the receipt must be furnished.
    – Up to $125 can be reimbursed for a suit (jacket and pant pair)
    – Up to $75 can be reimbursed for a tailored jacket
    – Up to $50 can be reimbursed for a tailored pant
